Kickoff


Every great match has to start with the Kick Off. We have the best backroom staff in the game at the Head Office of PZ Cussons Nigeria. This team is superbly trained to ensure that everyday we bring quality Premier Cool products to our fans at the right price and in the right stores.

A Great game always attracts the Press and our press conference ensured they understood the strength of our Be a Player team and how we always stay cool, ready to get onto the pitch and Win.

The Pre-match Press Conference

To kick-off the partnership, a media parley was held to unveil the ‘Be a player’ Campaign to gentlemen of the press at the prestigious Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi.

Amongst the attendees were esteemed trade partners, some staff of PZ Cussons, including the Managing Director, Family care, Alex Goma, Regional Marketing Director, Jim Judson who read a speech on behalf of Omar Berrada, the Commercial Director of City Football Marketing and the Head of Consumer and Channel Marketing, Family Care, Olujimi Taiwo who mentioned how PZ Cussons will leverage this asset to build sustainable brand communications strategies and plans for these brands over the next 3 years.

Here are some pictures from the event.

Pre-match training with the Backroom staff

It has been said that charity begins at home, so, following the Pre-match Press Conference’, staff of PZ Cussons were the first to experience the ‘Be a Player’ campaign.

Football-themed communal areas were installed at the Head Office and staff got to participate in a series of fun activities for a week. These included an inter-SBU tournament that saw all staff, from Family Care to Central Business Services, Wilmar to Nutricima and HPZ to Supply Chain supporting their colleagues with the true passion that only football can ignite in people. In the end, Nutricima emerged overall champions of the tournaments. But if the other SBU’s keep their promise, they would be unable to retain the crown in subsequent events.

Next off was the Facebook photo contest where Gbenga Ipaye of TEC Appliances emerged winner after having garnered the most likes for the photo he uploaded with the ‘Be a Player’ backdrop.

To round it up, employees answered quizzes relating to PZ Cussons, the brands and Manchester City. Three winners were selected from 100% correct entries in a raffle draw anchored by the Corporate Affairs Director, Mrs Yomi Ifaturoti and monitored by the PZ Internal Audit team.

Winners were Adeniyi Adegboyega Assistant Channel marketing Manager, Family Care; Matanmi Lawal, Research and Development, and Tunde Aregbesola, Shift Manager Aba Factory. The prize for all four winners was an all-expense paid trip to watch Manchester City FC play live at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester.
